a good read and visual aide
I enjoyed it and I think he was a man ahead of his time. I think it's better than many 'diet' books out there.

good for artists
If you like to draw, as I do, this is a possibly a useful book for you. Always on the look out for figure study books, and this one sure offers a lot of different poses, more than most figure study books. The shading is good, particularly.
